New, 16 comments

Under the headline: "City Hall trying to stop birds from pooping in surf," the Santa Monica Daily Press reports that the Santa Monica City Council is expected to approve a contract with "Bird Busters to install a net directly beneath the Santa Monica Pier where pigeons roost and frequently defecate, creating challenges for City Hall to meet bacterial levels set forth by the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board." What oh what is Bird Busters, you ask? Bird Busters is a company that can solve your problems with birds via methods ranging from strange-looking streetlight deterrents to turkey-shocking. [SMDP]
